Denon S301 - Using for Home Recording as well for Guitar Players
1 January 2014
Summary: I got this as a gift from my son, and I have also found another use for it since I already had a decent sound system on my tv. I wanted some speakers for my laptop to play guitar through and record. This works AWESOME!
Summary: I believe for the price its worth the money, but buyer beware it took me 3 returns to Crutchfield to find the perfect one. The first two systems kept on going black when playing back DVD movies. I recommend sending it back right away if you start to see this happening.
Summary: I just received this system last week after ordering it off of Amazon and couldn't be more pleased. For people with space constraints I can't imagine a better small system for both home theatre usage and as a music stereo.
Summary: I have researched home theater systems online for a long time before I rested at Denon 301. Had a lot of reasons to choose it over Bose. Bose though sounds better in 5.1 system, but Denon beats the sound effects in 2.1 system. Overall the sound quality is crisp.
Summary: I bought this home theater system from Crutchfield--not Amazon (because although Amazon is my overall favorite online store, the bad experience I had with a television purchase has made me vow to never buy another big-ticket item from Amazon ever again).
Summary: My wife and I very much enjoy the sound this unit produces. Unfortunately the unit I received has the same problem experienced in other reviews. The video signal is lost momentarily and then returns. Very annoying!
disfunctional with hdmi, and denon repair is unreachable

Summary: Maybe the other reviewers are denon employees. That's the only way I can explain the high ratings, and the absence of complaints about an issue that is reported on many other websites. When using hdmi, the screen will occasionally go black for about three seconds.
Summary: These units apparently have a fatal flaw in them. Many owners have had the units for a period of time - usually longer than the warranty only to find out there is a problem that eventually prevents the unit from playing CD's. No support for something that was just plain poorly designed.
Summary: I was undecided between the Bose 3-2-1 GS and this system until I realized the Denon system had a USB port for playing MP3s or WMAs from ANY mass storage device. Whoa! The sound is great! Surround? You betcha! Watched "War of the Worlds" last week..
Summary: I purchased this system in December and found it to be less than anticipated. The passive woofer is exactly that: Too passive and is, in many instances, non existent. Having come from owning a Yamaha/Klipch system (which I gave to my son-in-law and boy am I sorry now!
